Francis Magundayao Reunites with Ella Cruz, Joins ‘Aryana’
August 30, 2012 by ABS-CBN
After winning the hearts of TV viewers in his portrayal as the young Piolo Pascual in the drama series “Dahil sa Pag-ibig,” former child actor Francis Magundayao is now all set to make a big splash in ABS-CBN’s Primetime Bida as he joins the cast of top-rating fantaserye “Aryana” as the new love team partner of Kapamilya tween mermaid Ella Cruz.
Ever since Francis and Ella were paired in “Dahil sa Pag-ibig” as the young Piolo and young Cristine Reyes, TV viewers have already noticed the remarkable onscreen chemistry between the two young stars. This fascination prompted FrancElla (Francis and Ella) fans to aggressively request for the reunion of their idols in Ella’s fantaserye “Aryana.”
In fact, due to so much anticipation of TV viewers, Francis’ first appearance in “Aryana” last Wednesday (August 29) instantly became a hot topic in the microblogging site Twitter. FrancEllas flooded the said social networking site with tweets like “forevercheska: Francis is such a good dancer! Even when he is angry, he is still very handsome;” “@FRANCELLISTAS: Francis Magundayao’s acting talent is really amazing. He is a very talented kid;” and “joyful_jonnah03: I already want to see FrancElla scenes! I’m very excited!”
Meanwhile, TV viewers will surely get more hooked with the magical ‘tail’ of “Aryana” now that Francis’ character Adrian is about to meet Aryana soon. Who is Adrian? How will he change Aryana’s life? Will Adrian become a huge threat to Aryana’s close friends Marlon (Paul Salas) and Hubert (Dom Roque)?
Don’t miss “Aryana,” weeknights, on ABS-CBN Primetime Bida, before “TV Patrol.”
